    "Sony uses a rental model for the gaming service, and prices are relatively high. For example, it costs $3 to rent a game for four hours. However, the company has assured that it will come up with a new pricing model soon."

    They have to. I've browsed over the library they have in PS Now, and it is a very promising service. It's essentially Vudu for video games. The problem, however, is that the prices are way too high to be economical. I can buy used every title they have listed for a much lower hourly rate (dollars/hrs. of game content.). Even if I didn't still have my PS2 and PS3, I could pick up both systems and a respectable library for less in total than what it would cost to play through their listings. If they can't bridge the value gap, they're going to have a tough time getting more people onboard.
